    • (b) subject to paragraph 204.9(5)(c), each contribution made at any earlier time by or on behalf of a subscriber into the transferor plan in respect of a beneficiary under the transferor plan is deemed also to have been made at that earlier time by the subscriber in respect of each beneficiary under the transferee plan;

    • (c) except for the purpose of applying this subsection to a distribution after the particular time, applying subsection 204.9(4) to a replacement of a beneficiary after the particular time and applying subsection 204.91(3) to events after the particular time, paragraph 204.9(5)(b) does not apply as a consequence of the distribution where
